CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - A woman has been charged in connection to a motorcycle wreck that injured a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer Friday morning.
The wreck happened at 9:50 a.m. Friday, July 6 at the intersection of North Graham Street and Keswick Avenue. Upon arrival, police found a 2004 Chrysler Sebring and a CMPD dual sport motorcycle in the road.
The officer riding the motorcycle, identified as Officer Homan, was transported to CMC-Main with serious injuries, police said.
According to CMPD, Lamonda Sloan was attempting to make a left turn from Keswick Avenue onto North Graham Street southbound. Officer Homan was on North Graham Street in the inside lane. A semi-truck with a trailer was stopped in the outside lane of North Graham Street just before Keswick Avenue due to that lane being closed for construction.
The driver of the semi-truck was waiting to change lanes. Police said Sloan took a left turn onto North Graham into the path of the motorcycle. The motorcycle struck the left front of the Chrysler and the motorcycle and officer went airborne, police said.
Sloan is charged with driving while license revoked, fictitious registration plate, no liability insurance, failure to yield right-of-way, and unsafe movement.
Officer Homan is being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
